Vloshko Essentially a tie with Neon Impasse for my favorite and most listened to album of 2019. The difference being that I preferred this one for brighter moments of life. The pacing of the song Chroma Velocity makes my heart flutter and my stomach feel nervous at times. Favorite track: Endless and Artificial.

arcturiel Rrrgh! So blown away by both Leave You and Guaranteed Suicide (both feat. amazing vocals by rui ying) that deciding which I like more was physically painful!! The beats are on point in this album and there's a lot of lyrical awesomeness ^_^ Favorite track: Leave You (feat. rui ying).

SlashedSucubus This is quite interesting, mixing a lot of genre together. It really did amaze me, relaxing and just purely good, I sure hope to see more like this, great job.

By the way, the use of voice is just perfect, brings out a lot more out of songs that have them, bring a mood that is not that well grasp in other songs, it's just perfect, I appreciate this album a lot. Favorite track: Empty Expressways.

> Emerging through the midnight gateway, you feel a sensation in
your spine cutting upwards towards your neck. A flood of contempt and anger swerving with a velocity of unbearable degree; crawling through your eyes as you push another hour deeper into the night.
> But just as soon as it arrives it departs. Free from an eternal pain that died in its final crescendo. That which had been waiting for nothing, wanting to be free. Released from the sad numb feeling of twilight. Let go after an eon of sparring with the submissive contract of sadness.
> Within the ash a new persona blooms. An angel of saturation in delay, love in anger. Lifting you through yourself and into another body. 
The mind a shell, a clearing, a limitless void. And within that vessel of being and creation you undertake end without moderation, sympathy without abundance.
> You accelerate onto a myriad of empty expressways; the velocity you once were prison to now your constant catalyst. A utopia of urgency. A carved out memory of hearts in endless and artificial refinement. Cold crystal waves driving over a synthetic shore. 
> The numbness of fragility now shattered within a new erudite heaven. With no horns, no fangs, no spirit. Just a silence within itself waiting for nothing and wanting to be free.
> Chroma Velocity ▋

Track Name: Saturation in Delay, Love in Anger (feat. tiffi)
times before if i tried to stop running towards you

you'd come back and wouldn't be so into it

not 100% on these, gunna ask tiffi to clarify
Track Name: Leave You (feat. rui ying)
show you all the things that you've been missing out on me
i'll bring you back from better times but leave you at the brink
i'll tell you all about how i've been feeling so free
but i don't think you're worth my time, i guess that this'll be it

but tell me why you've been on my mind
all the damn fucking time
put this shit on rewind
i don't need to be right
don't want you to be mine
ain't gonna put up a fight
it's about fucking time
get the fuck out my life
Track Name: Ellipsis (feat. tiffi)
times before i've told you
if you get away, i wont have to

i could be disappointed if i tried...
i could tell myself i hate you, but that's a lie...
Track Name: Contour (feat. Christina Shin)
(never call home)
i lost everything that i knew
i started to not know who i was
the peach state

wasn't so sweet to me
instead everything was so rotten
you're the peach state
Track Name: Opulent (feat. tiffi)
he said he loved her more than words
so instead of words he gave her flowers to observe
she drew him pictures and a card
he said it was tacky and almost broke her heart

she loves him so much it's absurd
he thinks it's cute that her singing is the worst he's ever heard
and the way she'll close her eyes when she's nervous
and just about to cry

Track Name: Guaranteed Suicide (feat. rui ying)
I've been spending my time on you
’Cause you got me feeling so confused
I wish I could be doing more for you
But I don't really know what to do

Pretty baby won't you hold me close & hold me tight?
I’ll keep you sheltered from rain & light
You got me feeling all soft inside
& I just want you by my side
Track Name: Won't You Wait? (feat. rui ying)
you say 'why wont you wait?'
why do you make me feel this kind of way?
cus ive been so low
dont know where to go
tell me if you know, take the lead and ill follow you

[you say wont you wait wait wait
wont you stay stay stay]
